The West Antrim Group has just completed organising its winter programme.

Chairman Harry Millar stated that the programme should appeal to a good cross section of the members and is encouraging all members to attend the events.

In October the group will visit Wilson’s of Rathkenny, Ballymena, then in November there will be the annual Bank of Ireland breakfast in ‘Toast’ Cullybackey. Farming Life’s Richard Halleron will address the event.

December sees a group visit to Victor Turtle’s robotic dairy farm, Ahoghill, where A.E.S. Ballylumford, will tell us about three aspects of electricity - safety, renewable and efficiency.

In January the group will travel to the Kingspan to watch Ulster Rugby, while in February local MEPs will be in the Ross Park Hotel to debate Brexit.

The group’s annual day trip will be held in March which is this year to the Fivemiletown area with visits to Charles Crawford’s beef farm and Will Beacom’s dairy farm.
